.NET is an application framework - a set of libraries and GUI controls used to build an application: application talks to .NET, .NET talks to Windows. It's used both for web applications and for desktop applications. But it contains high-level functionality for networking, so quite often applications that need some networking functionality (such as accessing web servers) make use of the .NET framework (I have two RSS clients installed that use .NET, have long had .NET 1.1 installed, and recently had to install .NET 2.0 - I forgot for what!). But that is by no means its only application.

But if an application is built with .NET then that application needs .NET installed to run at all.
